Chiefs’ Charles limited with high ankle sprain

Sports

September 19th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles showed up for practice Thursday, albeit in a limited capacity, despite a high ankle sprain sustained last Sunday against Denver. Charles did not participate Wednesday and there were fears that one of the game’s dynamic playmakers could miss several weeks. Chiefs coach Andy Reid has not said whether there’s a chance Charles will be available for Sunday’s game in Miami.

Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry, who is also sidelined by a sprained ankle, remained out of practice. Rookie wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas also did not practice after returning Wednesday from a hamstring injury that has caused him to miss the first two games.

Linebacker Tamba Hali was limited in practice. He’s expected to play against the Dolphins.

Wainwright shutout, 19th win as Cards beat Brewers

Sports

September 18th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright posted his 19th win, pitching a shutout Wednesday night as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0 to hold their 2½-game edge in the NL Central. Wainwright worked around seven hits and tied for the major league lead in wins and shutouts.

St. Louis has won four of five and kept its advantage over second-place Pittsburgh. Milwaukee dropped 2 1/2 games behind the Pirates for the second NL wild-card spot. Mike Fiers held the Cardinals hitless until Wainwright singled up the middle with two outs in the sixth. It was Fiers’ first start since beaning Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton last week, ending his season.

Chiefs QB Smith takes responsibility for offense

Sports

September 18th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The past two weeks, when the Kansas City Chiefs have struggled to score touchdowns in the red zone, Andy Reid has insisted that he needs to put his players in better position to succeed. What happens when he puts the Chiefs in a bad position, though? Well, the Chiefs are paying quarterback Alex Smith a bunch of cash to get them out of it.

Smith said Wednesday that while his coach often takes responsibility for the shortcomings of the offense, the burden lies on the players to execute on the field. For Smith, who just signed a new contract extension, that means making wise decisions with the ball — and checking out of bad plays that Reid may have called.

Iowa youngsters set to take first aim at deer

News, Sports

September 17th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Around 10,000 young Iowans, 15 and under, are expected to take part in the state’s youth deer hunting season, which opens Saturday. Jim Coffey, with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, says participation in the season has been growing, even though only one-third of those young hunters are forecast to harvest a deer. An adult “mentor” must accompany the child, who can continue to hunt in future deer seasons if they don’t fill their tag in the youth season.Youth deer season

“A youth hunter’s tag is valid for all other deer (gun) seasons if it’s not filled during the youth season,” Coffey says. “So, we’re seeing more hunters shift to buying a youth tag for those youngsters because they can continue to go out and use that license until it’s filled.” The deer must be harvested by the youth with the tag. Coffey encourages the mentors, often the child’s parent, to focus on teaching hunting ethics, sportsmanship, and safety.

“And, realize that success is not harvesting the animal. Success is being out there, watching the woods, learning the animals, and really just starting to build that base of a good sportsman,” Coffey says. The September 20 to October 5 period allows youngsters to be the first Iowans to take a shot at deer.

Coffey says the early season usually features slightly warmer temperatures, so the experience is less stressful for a young hunter. The youth season coincides with the disabled hunter deer season. Last year, nearly 300 disabled hunters reported harvesting 120 deer.
